I seem to be surprisingly hard to fit in a tall boot. Having been a Western rider for the most part, I'm used to loose fitting boots that I can buy off the shelf. I've now switched to English, and have discovered that I'm some sort of freak.
I am 5'2", so I need a shorter-than-average boot. Since I'm pretty small, I also have a small foot (about a size 6). Unfortunately, I also apparently have gargantuan calves. They measure 15" at the widest point. Many boots don't offer a wide size until you are in a size 8 or so, or the wide is 14"-14-1/2", which doesn't work for me. Is there any company out there with a xwide/short in a small foot size? I'm not in a position to be able to pay $1000 for custom boots.
Is it possible to have boots that don't fit modified? I have no idea where I'd take them here. Does anyone have any experience with that? Does it end up cheaper than custom?
